School Of Rock - You're All In The Band!

Rock got no reason, rock got no rhyme... You better get me to school on time!

BASED ON THE HIT MOVIE  
MUSIC BY ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER  BOOK BY JULIAN FELLOWES  LYRICS BY GLENN SLATER
Full Length Musical (120 mins), Backing Tracks, Comedy, Contemporary, all audiences.
CASTING: 15M, 15F 

School of Rock is a two-hour, two-act musical (plus interval), based on the hit movie. The tuner follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn an extra bit of cash by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight–A pupils into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. But can he get them to the Battle of the Bands without their parents and the school’s headmistress finding out?

Produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber on Broadway and in the West End, Webber has also composed 14 new songs for the show, which additionally features all of the original songs from the movie. The composer’s numbers “You’re in the Band” and “Stick it to the Man” are well on their way to becoming rock solid standards, while the finale with “Teacher’s Pet” brings audiences to their feet.

School of Rock, with its sensational live kids’ rock band, is a loving testimony to the transforming power of music. May the spirit of rock be with all who pledge allegiance to Lloyd Webber’s newest hit now available for amateur productions in Australia and New Zealand!
